Rim Rock Patio – Torrey

Rim Rock Patio

There isn’t too much around Capitol Reef. The Town of Torrey is pretty small but the Rim Rock Inn has a couple of restaurants available. They have a fancier restaurant, which I didn’t think I smelled good enough for after a day of hiking, and the Rim Rock Patio.

The Rim Rock Patio dubs itself as a Spaghetti Western Café and that kind of cracked me up so I figured I would give it a shot!

The sign for the Rim Rock Patio is done in an old western style and calls its self a spaghetti western Café with the words BBQ and Pizza highlighted.

The Food

When the sign said that they had Barbecue and Pizza that was very accurate. They have a good number of appetizers but the main meals on the menu are either chicken or brisket barbecue or a pizza.

I thought a pizza was going to be a little much for myself and went with the brisket sandwich. The smoked brisket came with tortilla chips and a side salad.

I started with the salad which I loved because it came with big slices of mushrooms. The brisket was finely chopped and came with melted cheese and a really sweet barbecue sauce. With everything melted together it kind of reminded me of a sloppy joe but with much bigger chunks of meat, not quite as sloppy, and tasted different. I guess it wasn’t that good of a comparison but it was a good barbecue sandwich!

I enjoyed it.

The server told me that they had a brownie for dessert and I didn’t want to be rude so I had to order this as well. The brownie was served warm with vanilla ice cream. Both the brownie and the ice cream came with a drizzle of chocolate and what I believe was toffee sauce on them.

This is a direct quote from the note I took at dinner: “Warm brownie and cool ice cream was stupid good after a very long day”. So there is my initial, at the table opinion of how good this was! If you find yourself in Torrey, Utah visiting Capitol Reef give Rim Rock Patio a shot!
